The 1970s crochet book Crochet Criativo shows several pieces of work from a Lannie Martowe. The 1980s book Art to Wear has a few items from a mixed media crochet artist named Lannie Hart. Eu não sou 100% certain but it is my guess based on the style of the work that these two women are one in the same. Lannie Hart is still making art today, in the form of mixed media sculptures that explore femininity, found objects and iconic imagery.

Lannie Martowe in Creative Crochet

Lannie Martowe has multiple crochet art pieces featured in the Creative Crochet book.

My favorite of Lannie’s pieces in this book is this African Voodoo Man, which we only see a portion of here. What I love is how it is clearly crochet work and yet incorporates lots of other craft techniques. Os olhos são bordados e as penas e couro são costurados na peça. As conchas mostrar um amor precoce de mídia mista que caracterizaria o trabalho de Lannie nos próximos anos.

Este “bib frisado” por Lannie Martiowe combina pontos perfurada crochê e pontos altamente texturais com decorações beadwork metálicos. O livro explica que Lannie recriou esta peça tridimensional arte wearable de um desenho.

Esta boneca Kris Kringle é de cerca de 18″ de altura e projetado para olhar tanto como uma boneca antiga quanto possível. É feito de uma combinação de fios de algodão e lã.

Lannie Hart em Art to Wear

A arte da década de 1980 o livro para vestir consiste basicamente em trabalhos de artistas que fazem especificamente arte wearable (obviamente). Curiosamente, embora, the book features the work of Lannie Hart even though what’s shown there isn’t specifically wearable. Like the 1975 Hart Bag, shown front and back here:

I love the way that this piece combines photo transfer with crochet edging but it also incorporates other craft techniques like stitching and quilting.

Art to Wear reveals more about the artist. Hart was born in the South and learned to craft from her mother, who knew how to crochet among many other domestic arts. She was a commercial art major at Virginia Commonwealth but moved to New York City in the mid 1960s. She says of this time:

The Flower Child ear was in full bloom; I wore feathers in my hair and made beaded necklaces. I didn’t simply dress, I created costumes.

It was in New York that she met many of the women who were at the forefront of the creative crochet movement, Romano, como Dina Knapp, Nicki Hitz Edson, Julie Schafler Dale and Sharron Hedges. Hart aprendi a apreciar suas raízes artesanais Souther e, ao mesmo tempo a explorar a mistura de “masculino” e “feminino” mixed media in single art pieces. We see that combination in the 1976 piece Winged Victory which combines “masculino” objects like screws, bolts and Lucite with “feminino” crafts including crochet, quilting e bordados:

Lannie Martowe now Lannie Hart?

Como eu disse, I haven’t confirmed anywhere that Lannie Martowe later began going by the name Lannie Hart but here’s why I think they’re the same person:

  • Many of the artists featured in Creative Crochet were later featured in Art to Wear.
  • Art to Wear mentions that Lannie Hart knew Nicki Hitz Edson, co-autor do Crochet Criativo.
  • Several of the female artists featured in 1970s crochet books changed names between the 1970s and now, presumivelmente devido a casamentos.
  • Existe alguma semelhança entre o trabalho deste artista em cada um destes dois livros. Há uma tendência para o trabalho escultórico, bem como uma tendência para a incorporação de crochê com outra mídia mista.
  • Lannie não é o primeiro nome mais comum, é?!
Então eu me sinto bastante confiante de que estes são do mesmo artista, apesar de eu não ter visto confirmada.

Lannie Hart na Galeria

Hart mostrou em galerias desde 1970. Seu primeiro show foi um show do grupo em 1975 no Hallmark Gallery, em Nova York. Depois disso, ela foi destaque em muitas outras exposições colectivas dentro e ao redor de Nova York, incluindo vários shows no Julie Artisans Gallery (a galeria que trouxe muitos dos artistas de crochê a partir desse momento e coloque em um só espaço). Hart teve seu primeiro show solo em 1988. After that there was almost a twenty year gap between shows but in 1006 she began showing frequently again. She had a solo show in 2010 and participated in two group shows last year.

Lannie Hart, Sculptor

You can see what Lannie Hart is up to in the twenty first century by visiting her web page. She reiterates there that she has worked in many different mediums, including paints and clay, and of course soft sculpture with fiber and crochet. Her site says, “In her current sculpture she has drawn from her years of experience in all these media. Her work is a melange of all the materials she loves.

Hart uses a variety of found objects in her sculpture work. She uses polymer clay and various metals to create the shapes and works the found objects in to the piece, and she enhances these pieces by painting on them. I love the strong femininity of many of these pieces, like What Was She Thinking As She Walked Down The Aisle:

I also love that many of her pieces celebrate whimsy. You see it in the arm of the above sculpture but I think you see it even more in this piece titled Spring:

Lannie Hart, Many Hats

Lannie Hart seems to have never limited itself when it came to making art. In addition to her sculpture work, she also does artistic jewelry. An example is this bracelet, which is described beautifully asA collage of vintage jewelry from the 1940’s and 50’s assembled on a silver tone bracelet”:

It looks like Lannie Hart has also made a living for herself in her original art home of 3D design. She has done things like packaging and logos for large clients including Estee Lauder, Elisabeth Arden, Knotts Berry Farm, and Godiva Chocolates.
